International Students

Some departments at MIT require international applicants to submit the results of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Please check the Graduate Application for the requirements of your department.

The MIT Committee on Graduate School Policy requires newly admitted international graduate students whose primary language of instruction was not English to take the English Evaluation Test (EET) as a means of determining the current level of their English language skills. Information about the EET is available from the MIT English Language Study Program.

Other information pertinent to international students at MIT may be found in the web pages of the International Students Office.
